On October 7, 2018, Governor Rick Scott issued an Executive Order declaring a state of emergency in Florida, for Hurricane Michael.

The Florida Department of Health, in accordance with Executive Order number 18-276 and Executive Order number 18-277 has therefore extended license expiration deadlines for Radiologic Technicians (October 31, November 30). The new licensure expiration date is midnight on December 6, 2018. Unless another extension is granted, any active license not renewed before this time will go into a delinquent status. Please continue to check for updated licensure expiration date information.

The Council on Radiation Protection is an advisory council to the Department of Health and was legislatively established to ensure that every radiological personnel practicing in this state meets minimum requirements for safe practice. The Department is responsible for licensing, monitoring, disciplining and educating every person who use radiation and radiation emitting equipment to assure competency and safety to practice in Florida.


 **** ATTENTION APPLICANTS ****

Effective July 1, 2016, anyone applying for certification as a Radiologic Technologist or Radiologist Assistant is no longer required to complete the HIV/Aids course as a condition of licensure.  After July 1, 2016, you will not need to submit evidence of HIV/Aids Course Completion.  Please note that this is still a condition of renewal of a certification.

The Florida Department of Health (DOH) is aware that documents purportedly originating from DOH requesting information of a sensitive nature have been received by members of the public. These documents request licensees share information that may be used to commit fraud against a licensee or patient. DOH is committed to protecting the integrity of DOH licensees and consumers. The DOH Office of Inspector General is in contact with the Agency for Health Care Administration and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate fraud perpetrated on our licensees.

Should you receive a document that appears to be from DOH, but you believe may be fraudulent, you may contact your local law enforcement agency or you may contact DOH at 850-488-0595 for instructions on how to proceed. Your cooperation and assistance is vital in protecting the continued integrity of DOH licensees and our consumers.
